Finer 90nm production technology allowed Nvidia not just to improve the technical specs of its flagship product dramatically. They also managed speed up its younger brother, which has eventually become even faster than the legendary GeForce 7800 GTX. And the latter is famous for having arrived at the right time and into the right market segment and thus turning into a great success. Today we are going to find out whether the $299 graphics solution will be able to win the leader’s title from the 10-month old buddy.
X3: Reunion is a very demanding game, so you have to limit yourself to running it in 1024x768 on your GeForce 7900 GT. The same is true for the GeForce 7800 GTX and Radeon X1800 XL, though.
When using a SLI platform with two GeForce 7900 GT, you can choose any resolution you like with turned-on 4x FSAA or even 1024x768 with 8x SLI AA. That’s not bad for a tandem in which each card has an official price of only $299.
Note that the Radeon X1800 XT CrossFire is not far better than the single Radeon X1800 XT: CrossFire technology seems to work incorrectly yet in X3: Reunion.
